pri-yes!

my current reading material:



yes, i am a nerd who reads the owner's manual for my new car.

i love her. she's so purty, despite the caked-on dead bugs from driving it up to the ILs' yesterday. and it's so much fun to drive a car again - i get to be all zippy (it's a word!) and stuff, and it actually fits in the garage!

if you look closely at the first picture, you can see me rocking some horrendous white shorts that make me look all short and pudgy. and that random leg is the bean's, kickin' it in the carrier on my back.



oh, well. i don't care. i drove it from claremont to wrightwood to ontario, back to claremont and finally to glendora - and the gas tank is STILL full. plus, i get free lifetime oil changes!

of course, that's assuming the dealership stays open for that long. heh.

whatevs. i gots a new car!

[happy dancing]

  3. That's the car I want!! The hubby is trying to talk me into the Honda Insight...Who knows what we'll end up with when the time comes. I'm not a techy person, but the technology on the Prius is awesome! Did you get all the bells and whistles?

  11. You'll love it! You got the same color as me except I have the HOV stickers. I get like 46 MPG. You'll actually get a lot more driving locally. You will find that you'll start driving differenly so that you can get more MPG. Have fun!

  12. Awesome! I read my owner's manual too, so you aren't quite alone in that =) Zippy is absolutely a word. My little Subaru Impreza RS was zippy until some asshole crashed into it and totaled it. *sigh* Now I have a litte Forester. Not nearly as zippy, but better stowage options.
